Sucked in from the get-go, the void here is powerful! Instantly in love with Tryst, its finely tuned instruments and samples, and how it all comes together brilliantly in structure. I've got headphones on but still had one of those "Dude!" moments where I went wide-eyed and looked around to see if anyone else could hear and feel what I was.
Favorite track: Tryst.
Realm Of The Void is the second instalment in ASC's recently launched 'Realm' series, and once again the format remains the same; 8 tracks spread over two pieces of vinyl. From the opening densely spaced-out Dyad, to the bubbling synth tones of Uracil, the vibe is a little darker and abstract when compared to Realm Of The Infinite. There's a lot to digest in terms of sound design, with something new seemingly appearing around every corner. The Grey Area template has been expanded upon, showing what is possible with the tempo and time signatures contained in the album, and paving the way for future ASC experiments.
